I can relate; back in the day, someone gave me a mix tape of their favorite GD songs and there were some that I HAD to figure out. I ended up narrowing it down by figuring out the duration of the tracks and knowing what the band sounded like throughout their career.

According to deadlists.com, the band played LLR 418 times, so we need more clues to help you out.

Can you remember what the band sounded like on your version? If you can narrow it town to an era, check out:

for fan favorites. Who knows? You might even find another one you love while searching!

Thanks dyneq. This version is 8:03 and has Donna. It is a very slow version and has supreme guitar work. Jerry plays a solo that is ear piercing.

Well, the band played slowly in 1976, so you could start there.

I searched and they played it 32 times in 76. I was surprised to see that they played it on a lot of consecutive nights too.

There are several from 76 listed at the headyversion link I gave you earlier. Look at the length of the track first to narrow it down.

One of my favorite 70s shows, and one of my top 5 LLR. Killer solo in comparison to a lot of other LLRs, Jerry really rips this one.....

Good luck!

Certainly tremendous. I would also add the LLR from the previous year at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago in May. Revisiting 1977 reveals a truly magnificent run of shows from Spring through Autumn with the Englishtown NJ show in my top 5 ever.
